Progressive Dinner

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!  Psalms 34:8 The Lord made us to be in community with others.  In this high-tech world, where everything is light-speed fast, we seem to be less in community than ever before.  Yes, it’s true we have instant messaging, texting, facebook, twitter, … Continue reading

Married on Christmas Eve…Times Two

This post is in honor of my parent’s 47th wedding anniversary.  Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!  I’m thankful that the Lord has blessed me with both of you.    They meet in their 8th grade history class.  Mom wasn’t immediately smitten, but Dad quickly won her over.  When the teacher would call on her to answer a … Continue reading

Let There Be Light

Let There Be Light

       A trip to the eye doctors to acquire a prescription for glasses.  “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” plays one the radio.  A man once vibrant now on decline… waits.  Confusion clouding his mind–making him angry.  He is going from the light to darkness–dementia.  It could be any of us someday…this robbing of mind.  … Continue reading

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessings!”  Revelation 5:12b.       A memory from long ago–filed away when I was just a girl–came drifting to mind…count your blessing, name them one by one.   Was it a verse from scripture?  Perhaps … Continue reading

Counting Blessing…A Savior is Born!

Counting Blessing…A Savior is Born!

I began counting gifts about the middle of October–shortly after reading Ann Voskamp’s One Thousand Gifts.   It couldn’t have been a more perfect time of year.  God’s majesty was on display for all the world to see.  Trees dressed in brilliant colors–bronze, gold, and crimson.  Large, round pumpkins painted orange, scarecrows dressed in faded jeans, apples ripened, chill air, and … Continue reading

Reason for Hope

For I know the plans I have for you, “says the LORD.  “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.  Jeremiah 29:11      We all began life in the same way, cocooned within the walls of our mother’s womb–placed there by Holy hands.  God’s hands sculpting, molding, and forming … Continue reading
